DFID is currently carrying out a Resource Allocation Round to confirm the 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 budgets, following the November 2017 budget, and as such does not have a confirmed allocation for support to the Palestinian Authority (PA). Finalised official figures for the current financial year (2017/2018) will be released in due course. The UK remains committed to supporting Palestinians and is working closely with the PA to help build the institutions of a sovereign future Palestinian state needed for a viable two-state solution. In particular the UK is supporting the PA to deliver essential health and education services.
